So I've been watching 1970's Doctor Who on the BBC iPlayer. The Tom Baker section lists stories available on the iPlayer as 1,2,3,4,5,9,10,12,13,14 (this is nothing to do with any other story numbering). Is there a trick to getting the missing numbers (6,7,8,11), or did they just err? And does anyone know if there is more classic Who likely to be added in the future?

I'm not sure how I found it or why I didn't save it, but I remember a fan made Dr. Who Christmas video.The premise was four doctors (Eccleston, Tennant, and Colin and Tom Baker) all having a Timelord Christmas together. The Doctors were played by actors/fans. [more inside]

Isn't my landlord responsible for payment in cleanup of heavy Hurricaine flood damage to rental? I was told to get Flood insurance for my possessions, which I have, with a limited policy I could only get with Management pulling strings. Now multimillionaire landlord wants me to pay for cleanup through my insurance (which doesn't cover that.) Is this legal in NJ?

Does anyone know if the music in the English trailer for The Girl Who Played With Fire is original to the film, or if it was pilfered from somewhere else?

I cannot believe I am blowing a question on something that most other MFr's will find so .... trite. But here I am. I need help identifying a Dr. Who episode. Of the recent variety. I suspect it will be answered within thirty seconds. [more inside]

How tacky is it to be included in a Who's Who list? And, how much of a big shot do you have to be in order to be included? [more inside]

Dr. Who question. Can the Tardis ever appear inside itself? Has it ever?

Just received my Torchwood:Children of Earth DVD! I also have sitting here the first season set of Dr. Who (the first "modern" season...with bigger budget than the classic show). While I realize TCOE is considered fairly stand-alone, would it be best if I watch the Dr. Who stuff first
? And, for that matter, since I'm probably going to watch the other Torchwoods eventually, even though I know they're not supposed to be as good, should I go ahead and do that before
viewing TCOE? Or does everything work just as well if I approach it completely scattershot?

Does anyone know of where I could get (or download) a good sized copy of this
poster (advertising the fictional magician Li H'sen Chang), seen in the classic Dr Who story 'The Talons of Weng Chiang'
? I'd love to get a large sized copy to frame for my living room for some subtle geek chic!

Help my son get his Tardis
on. I'm currently decorating my 7 year old sons bedroom, and he is a big Doctor Who fan. He has asked me for a giant (I guess 6 ft) tardis on one wall of his painted bedroom.
My initial thought was to paint - but I don't have the requisite skills really, so I was looking for a Fathead
equivalent. I'm not sure the custom option on WallBangers will allow me to use a copyright image.
Do you have any other recommendations for giant Tardis resources? Or maybe a suggestion to get a large scale picture onto a bedroom wall - I'm in the UK if it makes a difference.

In the 2005 episode of Doctor Who titled The Christmas Invasion there was a song near the end that starts "Well I woke up today". The song takes place as The Doctor's 10th personality is choosing his outfit from the stores in the Tardis. Can this song be had in it's entirety anywhere?

DoctorWhoFilter: in the UK we have a TV show called Doctor Who, in which this dude with a long scarf travels through time in what is essentially a small garden shed called a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space).
More extraordinary than it's time travelling ability though, the TARDIS is actually bigger on the inside
- you walk into small garden shed to find huge room the size of a small television studio. Hence, in the UK when you, for example, get into a car that looks kinda small but is actually incredibly roomy inside, one might say, "bloody hell, it's like a TARDIS in here."
So the question is, is there an American equivalent?
